Before the 17-rider MotoGP grid began practicing for Sunday’s Red Bull Indy Grand Prix, one lucky AMA Supersport rider piloted a Suzuki GSVR – Elena Myers.
Although the 17-year-old female motorcycle racer was invited to pilot the Rizla Suzuki GSV4 after the season commenced in Valencia last season, nothing panned out.
But that changed at Indianapolis the Thursday before the race, when Myers rode for five laps around the 2.6-mile circuit, reaching a top speed of 190 mph down Indy’s straight.
Elena Myers (Team Suzuki) says: “Wow! I can’t really say anything else; it was just such an incredible experience! I can’t thank the guys at Suzuki MotoGP enough – they have been awesome! This makes me so hungry to come out here and try it someday for real on a race weekend: Well I guess this is a race weekend, but I mean for real next time. I can’t say enough about the bike either; it does everything 20 times better than I ever would have imagined – this has just been amazing and I think I’ll slowly realise what just happened over the next couple of days. The GSV-R just blew me away!”
